The Land Day Massacre Continues

Background summary:

  • Israel has been imposing a deadly blockade on the two million inhabitants of the Gaza Strip since 2007.
  • The Jewish state has launched three genocidal attacks against the defenseless people since 2011.
  • Israeli occupation forces have begun a new massacre against unarmed demonstrators commemorating Land Day, killing at least 37 Palestinians and wounding 2,000 others.
  • A Palestinian journalist was shot dead in Gaza while covering mass protests along the Israeli border.
  • Gaza strip is effectively a large Israeli concentration camp, where Palestinians cannot come and go freely and are attacked at will. They are deprived of water, food, fuel, electricity and even medical supplies.
  • The protests will continue through mid-May, when Palestinians commemorate the 70th anniversary of the nakba, or catastrophe, when more than 700,000 were forced out or fled their homes in what is now Israel during the war of 1948.

Israel Admits Spraying Poisons Inside Gaza Strip

Posted by feww on January 1, 2016

International law requires occupier Israel to facilitate normal life in Gaza Strip: Rights group

Israeli Army says they sprayed  herbicide to ‘enable security operations.’ Palestinian farmers say the poison has destroyed or damaged hundreds of acres of crops, said a report.

“The Israel army has confirmed that it used crop-dusters to kill off vegetation—and perhaps inadvertently, agricultural crops—inside the Gaza Strip last week.”

“The aerial spraying of herbicides and germination inhibitors was conducted in the area along the border fence last week in order to enable optimal and continuous security operations,” an IDF Spokesperson told +972 on Sunday.

Although various crops including beans, peas, parsley and Spinach were destroyed around the al-Qarrara area in eastern Khan Younis and the Wadi al-Salqa area in central Gaza, the Israeli media failed to report the application of herbicides.

“The IDF has for years imposed a lethal no-go buffer zone along the Gaza border. The army killed at least 16 Palestinians and wounded at least 379 more who entered or approached the no-go zone in recent months, most of whom were participating in demonstrations along the fence,” said the report.

“Spraying crop-killing pesticides, like opening fire at people of all ages and gender in the vicinity of the fence, puts civilian lives at risk and hurts livelihoods,” the spokesperson for Gisha, an Israeli rights group that works to promote freedom of movement for Palestinians in Gaza, told 972+. “By virtue of Israel’s substantial control of the Gaza Strip, international law requires it to facilitate normal life in the Strip.”  Read more…

Severe Flooding in Gaza: UN Declares State of Emergency

A two-day Extreme Rain Event triggered severe flooding in Gaza, forcing hundreds of residents to flee the ruins of their homes, and prompting the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) to declare a State of  Emergency across the war-devastated coastal enclave.

“We are very concerned about such severe storms this early in the season and on the back of unprecedented damage and destruction caused by the recent conflict,” said the UN’s Director of Operations for UNRWA in Gaza.

“We are particularly concerned for those families still seeking adequate shelter and preparing for the winter months, and for the impact the flooding is already having on children unable to attend school.”

“Gaza City is one of five areas in the Gaza Strip, a coastal enclave where UNRWA serves some 1.3 million Palestine refugees across all Areas,” said the UN agency in a statement.

“As a precautionary measure, 63 schools in Gaza City are closed today for the afternoon shift, affecting almost 65,000 students. Forty-three schools in the North Area of the Strip are also now closed.”

“In December 2013, the fiercest winter storm the region has seen for many years, Alexa, hit the Strip, and brought torrential rains and widespread flooding that displaced thousands. Such devastation exacerbates the already poor humanitarian situation for refugees and non-refugees in Gaza, which is dealing with the aftermath of a recent conflict, and an acute fuel and energy crisis.”

The latest episode of War on Gaza, which lasted 50 days, and ended in late August, killed more than 2,100 Palestinians, most of them civilians, said the UN.  A small number of Israeli soldiers and ‘civilians’ in Israel were also killed.

40,000 Abandon Their Homes in Gaza Flooding

Posted by feww on December 15, 2013

EXTREME WEATHER EVENT

Winter storm ALEXA dumps heavy snow on parts of the West Bank and Israel

ALEXA has dumped the heaviest storm in living memory on parts of the West Bank and Israel since Wednesday, paralyzing Jerusalem and leaving thousands in Israel without power, as severe flooding forced tens of thousands from their homes in Gaza Strip.

Severe flooding triggered by  extreme rain events  has forced about 40,000 Gaza Strip residents from their homes, including more than 5,200 who were evacuated to safety, officials said Saturday.

“Large swathes of northern Gaza are a disaster area with water as far as the eye can see,” said UNRWA that administers refugee camps in the Occupied Palestinian Territories.

Areas near a refugee camp in northern Gaza “have become a massive lake with two-meter-high waters engulfing homes and stranding thousands,” said an UNRWA spokesman.

With a population of 1.8 million people, Gaza is one of the most densely populated areas on earth, home to mostly impoverished refugees and their descendants.

The strip has experienced 12-hour blackouts daily since the lone power plant was switched off in November due to a fuel shortage, said a report.

Unprecedented winter weather has wreaked havoc, causing major disruptions across the region, AP reported.

EXTREME RAIN EVENT

Thousands evacuated from flooded homes in northern Gaza Strip

Severe flooding caused by four days of extreme rains has forced the authorities in the Palestinian territory and the UN Relief Works Agency (UNRWA) to evacuate more than 5,200 people from flooded homes.

Many more people have been trapped inside flooded homes as waters continue to rise.

“Large swathes of northern Gaza are a disaster area with water as far as the eye can see,” said UNRWA that administers refugee camps in the Occupied Palestinian Territories.
